Parrot Snake

Image # 1D2_04996

Evergreen Lodge grounds


Canon 100/f2.8 USM Macro

ISO 1600, f/2.8, 1/125 second

Manual Exposure



Greg found this snake at the edge of the walkway just outside his room at the Evergreen Lodge, and several of us took turns getting shots. It was fairly dark and shadowed, and was low down at the edge of the walkway, so getting a shot was tough. Several of us laid down to get a decent angle and background, and I bumped up ISO to 1600, with a wide-open aperture, to get this shot. I could have used flash, but wanted to avoid the background turning black. I had to use Neat Image to optimize this image, along with the usual Photoshop tools to control tonality.
